Chuck Taylor

My radio career began right here in Connecticut when  I started Reporting on the stock car races at the now defunct Danbury Fair Race-arena, at the age of 14.  After High School, I attempted to enter into the stressful world of air-traffic control.  I quickly learned that was not for me and I returned to my first love, Radio.  After graduation from  Ct School of Broadcasting, I got my first full time radio job in Poughkeepsie New York in 1990.  I have spent the last 22 years at various stations in Connecticut, my last being Mornings at WHCN.  I consider myself lucky to have pursued my dream of being on the radio, without having moved more than a few hours from where I grew up in the Mid-Hudson valley and Western Connecticut where both my parents are from.

Chuck will be on the air week days from 3 till 7pm on Lite 100.5 WRCH.   Feel free to send Chuck Taylor a note at
